In the Present

Dear Saints,

John Calvin said that, in regard to heaven, we should discipline ourselves to avoid undue speculation. Concerning the condition of the faithful departed, Calvin held that it is, ”Foolish and rash to inquire about unknown matters more deeply than God permits us to know.”

In thinking about whatever future awaits us in Christ, John Calvin urged his fellow Christians to live in the present in the name of Christ:

“Meanwhile , since Scripture everywhere bids us wait in expectation for Christ coming, and defers until the crown of glory, let us be content with the limits divinely set for us: Namely, that the souls of the pious, having ended their toil and their warfare, enter into blessed rest, where in glad expectation they await the enjoyment of the promised glory, and so all things are held in suspense until Christ the redeemer appear.” (Institutes III, 25, 6)

Who among us is pious? Who among us is without sin?  We are each sinners relying on God’s grace to be redeemed and molded anew as saints. Let us be ready to serve Christ in this present time.

Prayers: For government leaders. The Church. Nicaragua. For the hungry and all who mourn.

For further reflection read Revelation 7:9-17.

Let us all celebrate that the Saints Are Marching In!  

Still in One Peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
